High quality of construction of the board and pieces. While some have complained about the game rules & instructions being unclear, we found them to be understandable and straight forward.

My Senet game arrived today, over four days ahead of schedule (fast shipping is always appreciated!) It was well packaged and arrived in perfect condition. The board is sturdy and well made, and the pieces feel good in the hand. It's definitely a playing set but it would look nice as a conversation piece as well.

As far as the instructions, I've read comments to the effect they are hard to follow. I think the problem is that most of those reviewers were trying to learn how to play for the first time with the provided booklet. It's a lot easier to start out with YouTube videos and online tutorials, and then use the provided rules as an alternate way of playing. They will make sense if you try to get some context before sitting down in front of the board for the first time :)

My only complaint, if it could be called that, is that I wish the board came with 14 pieces instead of 10 to be able to play some of the their variants. I'm not sure if the seller offers additional loose pieces for sale.

All in all, I am completely happy with the set and would buy more from this seller.

My favorite game. Because of the way the rules are constructed, you can be about to beat your opponent badly and suddenly find yourself set way back on the board--so it is suspenseful right up to the very end. The set is lightweight, but attractive. The other board I had (identical to this one) held up very well--the only reason I don't still have it is that I gave it to a playing partner who was moving away. The pieces store inside the board, so the whole set is very compact.

Senet is the oldest board game know (what I've read). It's a lot of fun. This board game is very nicely constructed and the pieces fit into a drawer in the box. It's an excellent "travel with" game.

One thing - I would _highly_ recommend learning to play Senet from one of the many online games sites or a phone app. The rules are challenging at first. There are many different ways to play it. And the included instructions would not get you to complete a game.

If this game were made anywhere but China, it would be much more expensive. It is very well made, excellent craftsmanship, and beautifully finished. It is to be a gift for my oldest son and his wife.

I've played this game for over a decade. It is simple, fun and always anyone's game until the last throw of the dice/sticks. I highly, highly recommend it for anyone's game shelf.
